A retrospective analysis of 206 patients with lip cancer is presented. Poorly differentiated primary lesions have a high rate of metastases. The metastatic potential of well differentiated lesions, when classified by size in the TNM staging system, is the same as that of intraoral carcinoma. A therapeutic approach is proposed.
